courtesy of oh6gdx - fully cloudy orange colour with a moderate head retention; aroma of hay and raspberries, sweet with a hint of acidity; moderate malt body, gentle finish of raspberries with some residual sugars - boring

Pours a light and murky amber color with a medium off-white head. Decent lacing. Aroma is raspberries of course, but really nothing else. It might have something to do with the fact that I was building a deck in almost 90 degree temperatures, but I found this to be pretty easy to drink. Light bodied and very crisp, and fortunately the raspberry flavor is not as overwhelming as it is in other beers of this type. Clean finish. Nothing award-winning in my book but a passable summer beer.

On tap. Poured a cloudy golden color with a small head. Nothing too special - aroma and tastes of raspberries and wheat. Light and bland tasting. Ill pass on this in the future.

Sweet flavor, raspberry jam and toast. Kind of medicinal, not a huge fan of this.

rosenbergh (11042) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 23, 2013
12 oz bottle. BB 01/11... From a gas station in New Orleans, LA.
Hazy orange amber colour with a small white head. Pilsner malt and mild grassy bitterness in the aroma. Mild sweetness, raspberries... or some other berries and malt in a pilsnery flavour. Not very good or tasty.

shrubber85 (10959) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 14, 2005
Bottle. Sweet raspberry malt aroma - a bit like the sweeter lambic framboise beers. Moderately cloudy - pinkish amber color with small head. Slightly sour, light raspberry malt flavor - really expected it to be sweeter from the aroma. Very little body. Pretty weak and bland.

daknole (10920) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 19, 2008
This is a fairly good raspberry beer. Body is nice wtih good balance. Raspberry flavor is evident, but not too crazy. Not bad.
